Three people were injured in the assault by a group of men in Karlsruhe's southern town on Saturday night. A suspect was arrested on suspicion. According to the current state of investigation, the injured parties, two women and two men aged 21 to 34 years, were approached and insulted by a group of men last Saturday at about 11.30 p.m. on the grass strip on Ranke street, corner of Rüppurrer street. When they indicated that they wanted to call the police, the perpetrators attacked them and injured the 23 and 34 year old men and the 31 year old woman with punches and kicks. The 34-year-old victim received kicks and blows to the head while still lying on the ground. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries. After the attack, the perpetrators ran away. The injured managed to draw the attention of the alarmed police to one of the thugs. He was provisionally arrested. He is a 20-year-old man from the Gambia. The rest of the group is said to have been predominantly dark-skinned young men. They could no longer be established in the course of the police search. The exact background of the crime is still unclear due to language problems. Witnesses to the incident are requested to contact the Karlsruhe-Südweststadt police station on 0721/939-4411.
